Default Help with losing signal.

Hello. I have an airtronics m8 and when im running my car there are a short couple of seconds where i lose control with my car. Then seconds later I have it back. I am using the spektrum pro module for the radio. The battery level on the radio is at 10.0 volts. Any ideas?

Sounds like a module problem. If you know any one with another module try theirs and see if it works.

I had the same shit happen with my Spektrum DX3.0 this weekend. Exactly as you describe, just randomly every now and then losing control, sometimes constant. Changed the receiver, still had the same thing happen.

We raced in VERY high and strong winds this weekend though and that's the only thing different to last weekend when it was working fine...

Cheers

personally this aint a shit session but i find that so many have the spektrum that there has to be glitch issues
i found many using the spektrum style have these issues
personally the m8 is a great radio and it works a treat
i have the m11x so far so good and it works on the fhss3 band new and improved and faster as the write ups
now i did have a issue at the nats wich i had the same issue as u and what i did find is that the servo plug had come a tad loose unoticable by a glance until further inspec the other thing could be is dirt in the receiver
as its u anfo ill try help wen i can as u have done in the past for me on the other hope this helps

its because spektrum sucks. get the airtronics DSSS 2.4 system and say goodbye to glitches, runaways, loss of signal and any other problems

I've had this problem also with my m11 with Spektrum module. Turned out to be a bad receiver pack.

I had the same issue but I'm using a spektrum radio (dx3r). Changed battery, reciever, switch and still had the problem. Apparently, model 1 was the issue. Soon as I bound the reciever to another model on the radio the problem was fixed. I know ur running only the spektrum module and not their radio, but give that a try if u've already gone through everything else.

....had an issue with my M11 and Spektrum also..my Serpent would work correctly on the starter box....as soon as the car was on the track the vibrations caused the connection on my receiver pack to go "open" momentarily......checked battery and one of the factord spot "welds" was broken.....changed battery....problem gone....start with the simple stuff first.............battery..........
